This is the second US adaptation of Russell T Davies' original series which aired on Channel 4 between 1999 and 2000. Davies is executive producer on this new version, set in New Orleans, while creator Stephen Dunn has called this his take on the original series and a "reimagining" rather than a reboot.

The series follows a diverse group of friends who find their lives transformed in the aftermath of shooting at a queer nightclub called the Babylon, a set-up which was inspired by the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.
